The trial of Steven Gaskell went viral after magistrates convicted him of the bizarre offence outside The Elephant and Castle public house in Adlington, near Chorley.

The 32-year-old, of Lewis Close, Adlington, denied a charge of exposure with intent to cause alarm or distress, but was found guilty by the magistrates’ bench.

He was sentenced in December to a curfew and was ordered to sign the Sex Offender’s Register for five years.
